Benefit for Cafe Colonial/Colony

Friday, October 6, 8 p.m., Cafe Colonial, $5-$20


On any given weekend, you can expect these adjoined Stockton Boulevard venues to deliver punk, hardcore or metal shows to appreciative all-ages crowds. Maybe you’ve had one of the cafe’s burgers, named for local musicians; or maybe you’re a young’un who saw your first show there. The venues have fallen on hard financial times, and it will take a community to help keep the scene alive. Join bands Pisscat, Dead is Better, Pug Skullz and JKKFO, and dig deep to help keep the space afloat. 3520 Stockton Boulevard,
